The market shaping intervention project has $65.1 million funding and works in close collaboration with leading insecticide manufacturers, national malaria programmes and other stakeholders to increase the use of 3rd Generation Indoor Residual Spraying (3GIRS) products. This is done by supporting insecticide resistance and management strategies throughout Africa.
NgenIRS is establishing a sustainable, competitive and growing market for effective 3GIRS products at affordable prices.
We are making the most effective, long lasting insecticides available to malaria programmes and implementation partners to support insecticide resistance management strategies.
To achieve this we are addressing key barriers to Access through market shaping interventions:
- Demand: accelerating uptake of 3GIRS products.
- Market Stability: improving global forecasts for 3GIRS products.
- Competition and IRM: facilitating the introduction of competition with new quality-assured products from several manufacturers.
- Affordability: reducing 3GIRS prices through co-payments, reliable and guaranteed forecasts.

NgenIRS - The Evidence (2020 Video)
Due to the NgenIRS project the downward trend in IRS use was reversed and the resulting expansion of use has resulted in significant public health impact, savings in commodity costs and new evidence showing the cost-effectiveness of 3GIRS.
